Lyme Disease and related tick-borne illness (link)

I just started a thread about Lyme Disease in the Irrigation forum.

It applies to anyone working or recreating outdoors where infected ticks are present.

Some of don't venture out much from our specialty forums, so I thought I'd post a link to it here.

Funny, I just had to go to the doctor today for a tick bite. Removed a tick and had the red mark starting. Doctor said come in and see me, "Yup, thats a tick bite." No kidding? Glad I can fund your research doc.

No, I was told to wait and see if I get a fever or aches. I am home with my sick daughter who has fever and aches today. Maybe she has sympathy Lyme?
